Yea... green beans come out looking awful. my Grey loves fresh
green beans, he pulls the little beans out of the pods. I also
dehydrate leafy veggies, sweet & hot peppers and serve them
crumbled over other fresh foods. I use my dehydrator a lot
because sometimes if I'm running a little late I just pull my
baggies and fill their plates with no fuzz.
